Matthew McConaughey's Sing gets a new trailer

Here is the latest trailer for Sing, the new film from the creators of Despicable Me and Minions. Directed by Garth Jennings and produced by Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy, Sing stars Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane, Scarlett Johansson, John C Reilly, Taron Egerton and Tori Kelly, and is a musical comedy about finding the shining star that lives inside all of us.

Sing will be released in the US on December 21, Australia on December 26 and in the UK on January 27, 2017.

Studio Illumination has captivated audiences all over the world with the beloved hits Despicable Me, Dr Seuss’ The Lorax, Despicable Me 2 and Minions, now the second-highest-grossing animated movie in history.  Following the release of The Secret Life of Pets in summer 2016, Illumination presents Sing at the holidays.  Set in a world like ours but entirely inhabited by animals, Sing stars Buster Moon (McConaughey), a dapper Koala who presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times. Buster is an eternal optimist – okay, maybe a bit of a scoundrel – who loves his theatre above all and will do anything to preserve it.  Now facing the crumbling of his life’s ambition, he has one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world’s greatest singing competition.

Five lead contestants emerge: A mouse (MacFarlane) who croons as smoothly as he cons, a timid teenage elephant (Kelly) with an enormous case of stage fright, an overtaxed mother (Witherspoon) run ragged tending a litter of 25 piglets, a young gangster gorilla (Egerton) looking to break free of his family’s felonies, and a punk-rock porcupine (Johansson) struggling to shed her arrogant boyfriend and go solo.  Each animal arrives under Buster’s marquee believing that this is their shot to change the course of their life.

Stuart O'Connor is the Managing Editor of Screenjabber, the movie review website he co-founded with Neil Davey far too many years ago. He likes all genres, as long as the film is good (although he does enjoy the occasional bad "guilty pleasure"), and drinks way too much coffee.
